Product Details

Bendable LED Tape Light Mounting Channels are made from high quality, double-anodized, aviation-grade aluminum alloy. They can be fitted with the included frosted polymer cover to conceal the LEDs and diffuse the light output. Channels are useful for installations where the lighting will be visible, such as on the underside of a shelf or in a display cabinet, or to soften lighting to eliminate reflective hot spots on a nearby surface. They can be cut to length using a fine-tooth handsaw and run in sequence to create a longer fixture. They can be mounted to surfaces with the included brackets or double-sided adhesive tape (not included). Includes mounting hardware and end caps, the brackets guarantee easy and secure mounting to the desired surface, and can also be used as connectors between channels.
  • Channels are an attractive way to complete a professional LED tape light strip installation
  • Conceal and protect LED tape light strips
  • Made from durable, high-quality aluminum, 1m/39 in. channels can be cut to length
  • Flat profile for surface or recessed installations, corner profile for 45° directional lighting
  • Includes translucent diffusers to soften the light output and eliminate LED hot spots

      Awesome Option.
      We installed under cabinet lighting utilizing armacost puck lights on a 16 ft built in bookshelf unit. When installing you have long areas of exposed wire which was easily protected with these. Simple install- easy solution- and looks seamless. Overall installing this on my existing exposed wires was around 30 minutes including cutting the pieces to fit my light install.

      Perfect for me
      This is going to work perfect for me to hid my lighting around our model rail road. The channels are metal and the covers are frosted plastic. The clips feel a little flimsy but I don't plan on moving it around to much. The light lays nicely in the track and getting the cover on isn't the easiest but once it gets going it's not that bad. I do like the de fusion the cover does to the light.

      Simple product to protect LED lighting tape and diffuse its light
      LED lighting tape has become a popular way to spread light over an area. It has a series of small LED chips over a long flexible tape that put out white or colored light. Since the chips are spread apart on the tape and individually quite bright, using a diffuser in front of it can help even out the light. And many LED tapes leave the LEDs unprotected on their surface, requiring some protection against damage. This light channel (which doesn’t include the LED tape itself) does both – to a limited extent. Its light diffusion is fairly weak as you can see from the attached photos. And since the product isn’t waterproof, it is probably not a good idea to use it outside – such as on deck railings or umbrellas. If your objective is outdoor lighting, I would recommend using waterproof (e.g. IP65 or IP67) LED tape and attaching it directly using matching adhesive foam tape. For indoor use, having the LED tape inside a channel with a plastic diffuser over it does improve the look, particularly with the light off, as you don’t see the LEDs. Non-waterproof indoor LED tapes are cheaper, so this light channel can be a cost-effective way to physically protect it. And for LED tapes with low light output, the diffusion is probably adequate. Be aware that this channel comes in 5 different shapes: Surface Mount, U-shape, Recessed Mount, Corner Mount and Bendable. We got the “Bendable”. Measuring across the interior of the extruded base, it can accommodate LED tape up to 0.60” wide. A package of 5 channels includes 5 extruded aluminum channel bases 1m (39.25”) long, 5 frosted plastic lens strips, 10 plastic end caps for the channels (5 with holes for wires and 5 without) and 10 mounting clips with screws. It would have been nice to have a way to connect segments of channel as well as at least 5 more clips & screws to be able to secure each channel in 3 places. And note that for most LED tapes, the small hole in the endcap is inadequate to pass the cable hard-wired to the tape. The instructions are terse. For instance: “Channel can be cut to desired length” without any recommendations on how to do that without damaging the ends.

      Very good LED tape mounting channel
      This was a very well-built and easy to use shallow LED tape mounting channel. The frosted lens did a good Job of creating a uniform light pattern while allowing the correct LED tape light temperature to come through. The bendable feature is very handy for the uneven surfaces I need to install on. It came with a good amount of clips And end caps for the five pieces of extrusion. Very pleased

      Clean, Affordable, Professional. Step Up LED Tape Light
      I really like Armacost Lighting’s LED tape mounting channels. I’ve reviewed their recessed-style mounting channel before, and now I have the chance to check out their bendable mounting channels. I am really impressed. The tape light channel is the same double-anodized aluminum, but ultra-low profile (¼”) so it is easy to bend. The lens that snaps in is just as flexible, going wherever the aluminum channel goes. I like that everything just works. The mounting clips snap in easily and hold very well, plus they raise it off the surface ⅛” so condensation won’t gather, heat will dissipate, etc. Each lens arrives with a protective plastic cover, so the lens stays completely scratch-free until final installation. The end caps fit in nicely and look clean, plus they have a hole to let moisture out. This is a great product that will bend down to a 12” radius (24” diameter, so if you make a full U then the uprights of the U will be 2’ from each other). This is the manufacturers’ spec, but if you’re ordering this product, that probably just sounds like a challenge. Versatile and clean, if you have LED tape light anywhere, this in a very affordable upgrade that adds a very professional touch, and the lens eliminates hot spots in the lighting. These are fantastic!

      Great professional look
      This bendable LED lighting tape channel makes installing LED strip lighting a breeze. The included clips hold the strip firmly in place. The best feature is that the strips are bendable, within reason so they can be installed on round objects, or you can make a radius around inside corners. You cannot bend it to 90 degrees or it will kink, so no outside corners without cutting. The included diffuser snaps into place and gives a nice clean look to the installation.

      Simple and effective
      A very low profile channel for LED strips. The channel can be attached with the clips and screws or double sided tape. The channel can be bent to the surface with some limitations. Tight bends are not recommended because the plastic diffuser will not handle tight bends. The diffuser is a frosted plastic that does a good job of spreading the light evenly. There are 2 different end caps, one solid and one with a hole for the wires.

      Great bends!
      These led tape light channels are awesome for custom patterns and installations! They bend very easily by hand which allows you to shape them and fasten them to a variety of surfaces including large lettering or rounded home features. The plastic difuser looks great as well and easily bends with the channel. It comes with metal snaps to fasten in place, but I have also found that screwing straight through the channel can work better in a tight radius to get a better hold and hide the fasteners. They also cut easily with woodworking saws.

      These channels allow you to follow a curved structure for a clean looking LED tape light installation
      This review is for low profile bendable aluminum channels that make the installation of LED tape lights easy. (The manufacturer makes other profiles depending on the mounting conditions.) The channel is probably the most universal and can be mounted exposed or recessed under a cabinet. It is also available in a black anodized finish. Five pieces, each 1m (39”) long come packaged in a cardboard tube along with an equal number of plastic diffusers. In an under-cabinet application, the channel can be mounted facing down or back toward the wall, but the strip is only bendable along its small dimension. The manufacture does not provide information about the minimum bend radius, but I was able to bend the channel in both directions down to a 6-inch radius without the diffuser popping out. I did find it difficult to insert the diffuser unless you can slip it into the channel from one end.The lighting effect is totally different so you should experiment with both orientations. With the mounting clips and screws provided, it would be easy to change the orientation of the channels. The mounting clips can also serve as “connectors” between channels for runs over 1m (39”). The mounting clips have a very strong grip and take a lot of force to insert the channel. I opted to drill holes in the bottom of the channel, countersink the holes and attach the channel directly with the screws provided. End caps are also provided to provide a finished look. Ten each of the clips and caps are provided, four of the caps have holes in them, presumably for wiring, but they are too small for most applications unless you are using two-wire connections. The channels and diffusers can be cut with a fine-tooth hacksaw blade or a power saw with fine-toothed carbide blade. >>>>>>The channels appear to be compatible with most LED tapes, especially those with adhesive backing. Once the strips are in place, the snap-in diffuser cover will keep the LED tapes in place even if the adhesive loosens. Armacost makes a 5m long Tape Light Kit which is a good match for the channels. It includes a power supply, wire leads, and a color changing remote control.>>>> The product is from PRC.

      Perfect solution for led tape lights!
      I bought these to make supplemental lighting for my seedlings in my grow tent and they worked out perfectly. Installation for me was a little time consuming because my led strip connectors wouldn’t work with the channels. I chose to solder mine but you could just leave the led strip hanging out a quarter inch and not use the end caps. I stuck the led strips to the channels before installation but if you plan an going around a curve, make sure you run your channels first because once the leds are stuck, the channels will no longer bend. I love the finished look and the aluminum channels should add longevity to the leds as it helps dissipate the heat.
